Cynthia Bailey: Porsha Williams Anti-Gay Comments are "Ignorant"

by at . Comments

Earlier today, shocking video emerged showing Real Housewives of Atlanta star Porsha Williams making anti-gay comments at an Atlanta area church in 2010:

Porsha's RHOA co-star Cynthia Bailey has spoken out against Porsha's comments in a statement issued to TMZ.

"To put gays and lesbians in the same category as drug dealers, hookers, and people who attempt suicide is ignorant and insensitive," said Bailey. "Especially when she just profited from performing at a popular gay club. #flipflop"

Yes, Cynthia's statement apparently included a hashtag.

Joining Cynthia in her criticism is the frequent RHOA guest star known as Miss Lawrence, himself a gay man living in in Atlanta.

"I think some women use the community as a convenience...i.e. for gay slang, fan base building and beauty security," said Lawrence. "But like always, true character always reveals."

Porsha has long been a controversial figure on the Bravo series.

Her recent separation from husband Kordell Stewart has been an ugly and public affair and Porsha's fight with Kenya Moore on the RHOA reunion show led to her arrest on assault charges.

Williams' boss - openly gay Bravo vice president Andy Cohen - has not yet stated if she will face disciplinary action as a result of the video.
